"Having stayed several times before in Toby and Jane's house we knew we were in for a wonderful week! And -- we were not disappointed as the house was as perfect as ever. Toby is marvellous to deal with and provided a fine list of reasonably priced restaurants, several of which we sampled. The house was immaculate, private, quiet and the most comfortable base to explore the Berkshires. Unreservedly recommend a stay at the house in the forest.
Several highlights on this Berkshire stay were Chesterwood, the home and studio of Daniel French; a drive up Mount Greylock; and a visit to Ashintully Gardens, just down the road in Tyringham."

"Our family (and our dog) spent several magical days at this lovely secluded cottage in the Berkshires. It sits off a gravel road, up a hill and is surrounded by beautiful woods -- peaceful and serene. The cottage itself is lovely and well appointed. The loft bedroom (with balcony) is lovely and there are two nice sized bedrooms downstairs. A huge hit with our family was the gorgeous, large screened-in porch. It is huge, with a picnic table, a couple of sofas and a rocking chair. We spent many hours out there enjoying meals and playing chess -- nothing but the breeze and birds in the background. Behind the house, there are well marked trails that go through the woods and one goes down to the gazebo overlooking a beautiful lake where the canoe is stored. We make the hike (no more than 10 minutes) several times a day and took the canoe out often for fishing and just enjoying the beautiful lake. Cannot say enough about the peace and tranquility of this property. Bill, the owner, was wonderful and responsive. The little town of East Otis is very nearby with a country store and a place to get sensational ice cream and take out. There is a restaurant in town as well. Great Barrington is not that far with lovely shops and a huge variety of restaurants. We simply had a blast -- the dog, the kids and the adults. We cannot wait to return to the peace and quiet of this cottage."

"We had a great time. The house was neat/clean and as lovely as the pictures on the website. The owner was easy to worth with and, provided some great suggestions for shopping, and enjoying the area. The goat cheese from the area is AMAZING. Thank you!"
